When UC alumna Maria Nosse graduated from the Carl H. Lindner College of Business in 2005, she knew her education would provide her with a view from the top. After giving back to the university, that view became a reality. As the grand prize winner of the Bearcats Come Back campaign, part of the 1819 effort aimed at increasing alumni giving rates, Maria won an aerial tour of her alma mater in the UC Health helicopter.
Now a Cleveland-area resident, Nosse sees the importance of giving back to the university and understands that when it comes to funding education, every donation counts.
“I am Proudly Cincinnati because UC gave me the great education and tools to achieve everything that I wanted so far in my life,” said Nosse. “I’m happy to give back to them.”
Nosse was one of 20 alumni who gave back to UC before June 30, 2012, and were entered to win VIP experiences ranging from a tour of the President’s office to tailgating parties with friends.
Congratulations to Maria Nosse and all of the VIP winners! And, if you're feeling inspired to give back, visit http://uc.edu/1819 to make a donation today.
